Student Aid Report

Approximately 1-2 weeks after you complete the FAFSA, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). Carefully review your status and follow the instructions if you need to make any corrections. The UAM Financial Aid Office will receive your information from FAFSA if you have listed our school code in the "School Selection" section. 

Apply for State Aid

Arkansas State Aid - completion of the Arkansas YOUniversal Scholarship Application is required. The Arkansas Department of Higher Education has information available for students and parents (www.ADHE.edu).  Start your Scholarship Application by clicking the START button.
